"Oh, that would make a great slogan for MONSTER! If, you know, we had some actual mutant members."
An unusual on-campus group comes to the rescue of Marie and Clarice.
M.O.N.S.T.E.R.: Art Nichols, Helen Williams, Wilhelmina Gillis, Adrian Castorp
Marie goes to visit Clarice during homecoming weekend at the University of Maryland. She meets a couple of the members of M.O.N.S.T.E.R. The girls attend the game and are surprised to see a mutant cheerleader on the opposing team’s side. When Maryland loses the game, the fans blame the loss on. In the beginning of the riot, Clarice’s purple skin makes her an easy target to identify. Overwhelmed by people, Clarice doesn't dare teleport and Marie can’t see a way to get them out without hurting people. The students of M.O.N.S.T.E.R. help the two girls escape to the dorms while the campus happily riots, tearing down a goalpost and burning it on frat row. Marie and Clarice promise to never speak of being saved by the group again.
Trivia and Meta
Marie was incredibly amused that Maryland’s mascot is a turtle.
This plot was inspired by the riots Avital witnessed while attending the University of Maryland. It may also have influenced by the sugar high the plotrunners had from eating cookies at the mall during the development of this idea.
